    How do I get my license if I’m not 16 or older, is there a way around this?

    I’m interested in Starting Drone business in Kenya and I was looking at getting DJI Inspire 2. I know this is stretched budget for a start-up but considering people have the Phantoms and Mavics the output quality might be good for me. Also, drone licensing in Kenya is very expensive and you might spend $2,000 on a drone and pay the government $1,500 for licensing which is very weird. So I would rather spend that much on registering a high-end drone. Thanks for the comments. Really insightful.

  15. Paul Emus on August 23, 2020 at 9:43 am

    I am retired military photojournalist, just looking for freelance part time work. Jobs come mostly through DroneBase and I got a couple jobs through Yelp, but got burned by predatory marketing offering promotional no-cost advertising and then later charged several hundred dollars. Also charged by Thumbtack for referrals but no jobs. Advertised in a boating newspaper and got two jobs making less than the cost of advertising. I don’t exactly see the industry as booming.

    Hey, i’m starting the drone busines in Cape Verde and i loved the video because it made me be sure of the first propositions and type of aproches. The market in here is on growing and the thing i’ve had the most problems with is the drone importation mostly because of the pandemic statsin the world. So i’m looking forward to this and i’m glad to have good intel in how to build it, the thing i miss now is a partnership with foreing companies and equipment seller’s. Thank you for the video instruction.

  25. Arceus 112 on August 23, 2020 at 9:56 am

    With corona ravaging the US
    Do you consider viable to begin a drone business? what drone platform would you recommend? What is the realistic time of investment return?assuming a considerable amount of "hustle"
    Would appreciate a response thanks

  26. Alan Nassir on August 23, 2020 at 9:56 am

    Hi, I’m new to the Drone industry and I’m really excited to be apart of it. I have a question about the sub 2kg for business (CASA). I fall under this category as I would like to use my drone for construction. I know I have to adhere to the standard drone rules we have in place but how supposed to capture construction data in a residential area where there are homes and cars less than 30m away? The same goes for real estate agents. I’m wondering if I’m allowed to fly in these conditions. I’m targeting drone work for new residential homes, house extensions and remedial work for the company I’m currently working for.

    PS. You guys have been a great help. Videos are very informative and Australian 🙂 Cheers

  27. Don Ireland on August 23, 2020 at 9:57 am

  35. Doug Kimpton on August 23, 2020 at 10:06 am

    Great listening to what you had to say, some very valuable advice which I will take note of. At over 65 years old, I am looking at a diversion in retirement and have developed a keen interest in drone technology, thanks for the advice!

  36. eric scott on August 23, 2020 at 10:09 am

    NEVER do ANYTHING in this business for free!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Marvin Rosario on August 23, 2020 at 10:09 am

    Going narrow has been a big priority for me lately. As you start your business it’s easy to listen to everybody elders ideas on what you should do next but this advice is needed to keep me on track. Thanks for the content!

  38. WighTShadoW on August 23, 2020 at 10:11 am

    Thank you so much. This video was extremely helpful.

  39. Matt C on August 23, 2020 at 10:12 am

    When your courses launch I’ll buy it. Love your content man. Thank you

  40. Drone Girl on August 23, 2020 at 10:13 am

    Collaborate !!!!🤔 …. tried that, just got a group of blokes with huge ego’s telling each other how expensive their setup is. Then after they all dropped their prices trying to under cut one another. Bit of a cut throat fight when you are in a small rural city…. doesn’t matter how good your portfolio looks as long as you do it for practically nothing then businesses will hire you.
    Thanks for the great tips, always good to hear honesty, instead of telling people what they want to hear. 👌👌

  41. Karl Malin on August 23, 2020 at 10:14 am

    Mate, your spot on! I like to ruck about… play Rugby for you’ll. Flown airplanes, photography and getting into drones. I like your advice about networking… it will help you not hurt your business. Don’t specialize in the small things. Great advice and is hard to do with so many moving parts (drones/cameras etc.). Great job explaining how your doing it big ‘Down Under’. Great Job Mate!!!

  42. ROCKY NASH LIVE on August 23, 2020 at 10:14 am

    Great video. I am adding drone photography and videos to my existing services and starting small before leveling up. Great tips. Thank you for sharing.

  43. Natasha Khan on August 23, 2020 at 10:18 am

  46. Robert H. on August 23, 2020 at 10:23 am

    At what point does mapping cross over into surveying and issues with that type of cert/license?

  47. Bimmer Boy on August 23, 2020 at 10:26 am
